Hello all
I am a biology graduate. I worked in cancer research and development for more than two years. Recently moved to Canada, and now I'm wanting to transition into clinical research.
Most jobs I find online ask for atleast 2 years clinical experience.
Does anyone have any tips on how to procure this experience? Should I invest in a course? Or should I volunteer at a CRO?
I recently got offered a clinical admin position, would this count as clinical exp?
Thanks

A Clinical trials admin role would be better if you can apply to some but seems wise to take the clinical admin role anyway to show current employment and that you can do admin etc

Any chance you have the availability to volunteer on various clinical trials? That might be the best way to get your foot in the door. Also, you may want to have your resume professionally optimized.

Hi. Thank you for getting back to me. I am open to volunteering. But most positions I see are for clinical trial participants. Would you recommend any specific website or cro that are open to having clinical research volunteers?
